slow burger for nari
nari asked the think tank to highlight the scarcity and importance of water via a go-slow action.
after learning how much water it takes to create a single hamburger rebel tanya was given the challenge of eating one really slowly.
it takes 24,00 litres of water to make a hamburger, so 2,400 seconds to eat one, which is around 40 minutes.
“It’s takes everyone to participate in these tiny actions to swing the overwhelming tide of denile, ignorance & apathy.”
what is the idea we are moving forward with?
it takes 2,400litres of water to produce 1 hamburger
a super slow hamburger eating event.
the hamburger is eaten slowly over 40 minutes, 1 second [2,400 seconds] equating each second with 1 litre of water needed to produce a hamburger.
how can we do it?
using time lapse video
a member of the task force buys a fast food burger and then takes 2.4days to consume it.
there is a split screen on the video that counts up/ down at the same time as the litres of water tick up – to correlate the relationship between huge water consumption usage in the agriculture & meat production industry.
where does it need to take place?
fast food outlet, or outside a fast food outlet.
during opening hours – inside. after opening hours – outside
are there any legal implications to the activity?
we are buying the item it is just the time it takes us to consume it.
